Riot-Worthy Dish
Wine Enthusiast editors asked America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2013 "which dish would start a riot if it was taken off the menu?" Their riot-worthy dish is…
"One signature dish, the shrimp and tasso henican, is on almost every table we serve. Paired with an off-dry Riesling, this dish is truly explosive."

Perfect Pairing
The perfect wine-and-food pairing is a synergy in which each component is made better by the other, like the Foie Gras du Monde, paired with a Moscatel Sherry.

Wine Events
From a customized food-and-wine pairing dinner in our wine cellar room, to the flexibility to offering half-glasses from among 40 different wines by the glass, we allow each guest to have a different wine with every course.


Wine Enthusiast Magazine announced the third annual issue of America's best wine-centric establishments, and to commemorate the list, WE hosted a rooftop party where we honored this year's recipients and toasted the exploding culture of wine and food.
